baking time!

I was in the mood to bake last week (which does not happen very often)--I'm more of a cook than a baker. So, I suggested to the girls that we make Valentine's cookies. They were soooo excited! I had a lot of fun snapping these as the process unfolded.

The rolling pin provided great entertainment while the girls were waiting for me to mix up the dough!

I taugh the girls how to "plan" their cuts in order to maximize the dough. They actually "got it" and made really good use of their space.

I usually don't care for photos of kids eating food, but these just made me smile!

And, of course, one of M's wonderful expressions. She has so many!
